's important to know there's an fbi investigation that has begun and will take some time to be completed. that will tell us with certainty what transpired. but our current best assessment based on the information we have at present is, in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo. in cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> that was u.n. ambassador susan rice yesterday morning. now, many have a hard time believing that, including senator lindsey graham. his colleague, john mccain also believes the assault was pre-planned. >> why do you think they're calling it a spontaneous attack? >> i have no clue. the facts -- the facts are so clear that heavy weapons and rocket propelled grenades, indirect fire and direct fire used could not be spontaneous. >> with that kind of pushback, the state department seems to be trying to soften ambassador rice's statement. listen. >> we've heard a number of different things from libya
to join in the hunt for them. the fbi is also investigating. as we said at the top of the program, american warships armed with cruise missiles have begun steaming closer to libya. a marine unit is headed to tripoli to protect the embassy there and other forces may be called to beef up protection globally. >> we're working with the government of libya to secure our diplomats. i have directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world, and make no mistake, we will work with the libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people. >> well, later today after that speech, on the cbs evening news, president obama also had sharp words for mitt romney, who's come under fire from democrats and some republicans for his statements lashing out at the obama administration's response to the attacks in benghazi and cairo. statements that whatever you believe about american foreign policy are simply not factual. we'll get to the battle over that in a moment. first we do want to focus on the attacks themselves, what happened last night an
bush, president clinton, the cia, the fbi, the department of justice. it was a much more context report. if anything, he's said in his reporting, and they never had the heart of what he says, which is other pdbs gave credence to the fact that this was an attack that could have been stopped. >> in my reading 06 the 9/11 report, it says numerous actions were taken overseas and domestic agencies didn't know what to do. >> that's true, because there wasn't the same kind -- i want to address a number of things that ari just said. i mean, number one, i want to point out his first approach was attack the messenger. number two, i am quoting from presidential daily briefs. ari is not coming in here and saying oh, i have other information. i don't know what he's saying. is he saying i'm just lying and making them up? ari, this is what it says. >> i'm reading from the 9/11 commission. >> i allowed you to speak, would you give me the same benefit? i'm angry at ari today, because the first thing he did was send out a tweet, calling me a 9/11 truther. meaning one of those people who says that george
